“HOMOSEXUALITY IS A SIN” So Gay Man Sues Bible Publishers For “Emotional Distress.”


A gay man has filed a $70 million lawsuit against two Bible publishers, claiming their translations of the Bible calling homosexuality a sin caused him “emotional distress.”

The man, Bradley LaShawn Fowler, claims the publishers, Zondervan and Thomas Nelson, have manipulated scripture with the use of the term “homosexuals” in certain revised editions of the Bible.

“Fowler alleges that the term homosexual was deleted in later versions by Zondervan but in their 1982 and 1987 translations the publisher uses the term in First Corinthians 6:9 incorrectly,” Liberty Voice reported. “The older King James Version, from which his family pastor preaches, has caused him to be cast away by his family for its use of the word homosexual.”

“As a result of suffering 20 years of mental instability and emotional duress, Fowler is suing $60 million from Zondervan and $10 million from Thomas Nelson Publishing.”

Zondervan’s spokesperson, Tara Powers, dismissed his claims.

“Since Zondervan does not translate the Bible or own the copyright for any of the translations we publish, we are not in a position to comment on the merits of how a word should or should not be translated,” she said. “We rely on the scholarly judgment of the highly respected and credible translation committees behind each translation and never alter the text of the translations we are licensed to publish.”

“We only publish credible translations produced by credible biblical scholars.”

Other gay activists simply wrote their own gay-friendly “Bible” called the “Queen James Version.”

“The Queen James Bible resolves any homophobic interpretations of the Bible,” a website promoting the book states. “We wanted to make a book filled with the word of God that nobody could use to incorrectly condemn God’s LGBT children, and we succeeded.”

    If this is a hoax it really needs to stop circulating b/c it’s extremely annoying to say the least! But if it is true, then we need to pray for this individual, b/c by his actions he is choosing to deny the truth of Scripture which will place him in peril of judgment for denying the deity, lordship and sovereignty of Christ which will result in eternal damnation…

    Elizabeth Shaw…My sincerest apologies for any unfortunate prior exposure to Christians that may have caused you some doubt. And it is unfortunate the “pseudo-facts” you have chosen to accept as fact. But NO ONE is born gay – that is a lie from the devil. The Word of God says that He is not a man that He should lie. When He created us He created us Male and Female – each one distinctive from the other with a specific purpose, ability and function. The Word of God also says that there is a being – the devil – whom He has classified to be the originator of perpetuating lies and confusion. You have only to ask God to open your eyes so that you can see past all the chaos and confusion that is playing havoc in peoples lives in this present age. You really need to know that a lot of what is being declared in the annals of so-called science today find much of its origins by way of demonic teachings, but of course, if you don’t believe in demons you’re not going to see it that way; yet nevertheless it doesn’t negate that truth behind it. There is not now and never will be a “scientific” stand to prove such an allegation b/c that’s all it is..an allegation with no basis in fact, although they make every effort to brainwash people to think to the contrary. Those doctors who spoke with you certainly came across ignorant with their lack of knowledge (medical or otherwise) and it also appears that they desperately needed to take a refresher course in medicine – that was apparent. Now, if you were to bring scientific nuance to this argument then the “gene” argument most basically cancel itself out b/c how could such an ignorant belief work it’s way into the process of procreation. Two men cannot procreate – at least not w/o seeking the intervention of a woman’s womb, and two women cannot procreate without the intervention of a man’s sperm, so then these types of arguments cancel the argument entirely and cannot qualify into the Darwinian position of evolution, because “the numbers simply do not add up.” You have also been misinformed if you think that apart from salvation through Christ anyone can be classified as a child of God…NOT TRUE! May I recommend that you go directly to the source – to the Bible – and look up the Gospel of John, Chapter 1 where you will see that His Word clearly delineates this Scriptural fact.

    The man is right about the Bible inciting to hatred but is wrong to blame a mere translation. The original Bible endorses anti-gay hate.
    Jesus took responsibility for writing the Old Testament through divinely inspired men despite its commanding in the name of God that homosexual men who have had sex and other “sinners” be savagely murdered by stoning. He said that not a dot of it would pass away until God fulfilled it – meaning God fully approves of it.
    Jesus Christ: “I tell you that to everyone who has, more shall be given, but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away. But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence. (Luke 19:26-27)
    “Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctifies him, and has insulted the spirit of grace? For we know God who said, “It is my job to avenge and I will repay!” – Hebrews 10.
    The law of Moses claimed to be divinely inspired. It required that gays who had sex and adulterous people and murderers must be put to death by stoning without mercy. The above New Testament text says that they deserve it. It also says that those who know Jesus and who sin deserve worse. The sins listed in Hebrews are purely religious ones – insulting Jesus and treating his blood with contempt. God said he will take revenge. The text does not say he will take revenge himself without using us to do it. In fact, he said it when he was using Israel to punish people by application of the law of Moses. So the text means he will use the Church to destroy his enemies.
    Paul wrote in Romans 1 that everybody knows that homosexuals and other sinners should be destroyed – deserving to die means they are forcing God to kill them. “Knowing the judgment of God, that those who commit such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but have pleasure in those who do them”. The text could be speaking of God’s law that homosexuals are to be murdered by stoning.
    The death penalty under divine law is not optional nor a maximum penalty. Whoever kills any man shall surely be put to death…. You shall have the same law for the [foreigner] and for one from your own country; for I am the Lord your God.” Lev. 24:17-22
    ‘Moreover you shall take no ransom for the life of a murderer who is guilty of death, but he shall surely be put to death… So you shall not pollute the land where you are; for blood defiles the land, and no atonement can be made for the land, for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it.’ Num. 35:31-33
    Christians boast that they do not have to keep the law from God about stoning homosexuals to death for Jesus did away with it. But the text above tells them that such an abolition is no consolation for God will still have them punished if not by others then he will do it himself. And indeed the text says a fate worse than stoning awaits.
    Christians then do not oppose the stoning in principle. They do not see it as wrong in itself. When God takes life, it is easy to take the next step and say stoning cannot be wrong in principle. He might command you to stone when he is master of death and life.
    They approve of keeping the rule about stoning but up to when Jesus abolished it.
    Jesus even if he did abolish it, did not state that the rule was wrong. Changing the law, does not necessarily mean it was wrong before but only that it is time for a change. And it could be that the law was not abolished but just didn’t apply in Jesus’ day. A law going out of date does not mean the law is being changed.
    The notion that it was abolished is based on the idea that the law was a civil law. But there is no evidence for the law being merely civil law at all in the Old Testament. It was religious law. There is nothing that indicates that the law only applied in the day it was written. That God put it in the Bible implies that it wasn’t. If you were God, you could imagine yourself giving such awful commandments by revelation to a prophet but you would keep them out of the scriptures if they were temporary. It is not the kind of thing that should be in a holy book.
    Even if the stoning law was a civil law, it was also a moral law. In other words, if there is no civil law demanding stoning, then stone them for the sake of the moral law. Civil and moral laws may at times be identical. The Law of Moses has God stating that if homosexuals are stoned to death their own blood is upon them. In other words, it was not the law to blame for stoning them but themselves for doing something so evil. They are morally intolerable.
    Jesus supposedly abolished the stoning law when he told people who were going to stone a woman to death for adultery that the first stone should be cast by the person without sin. But this case had nothing to do with the law. It was a lynch mob who wanted to stone her not the proper authorities. And he did say the sinless person had a right to stone her. The episode confirms the validity of the stoning law.
    The claim that the murderous Old Testament laws were only for people living centuries before Jesus is easily refuted. Jesus told the Jews off for not stoning people to death if they cursed their parents, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? For God commanded, saying… `He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’ But you say…” Mat. 15:3-4. “For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men…” [Jesus] said to them, “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition. For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother; and ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’ But you say…” Mark 7:8-11
    Some Christians today go into politics and defend the death penalty for homosexuals. They understand their religion correctly at that point. Uganda is an example of that!
